Year 5 and 6 Presentation of learning – What’s the magic of rivers?

To present our learning this term, we banked on visitors flowing into the classroom to see a wide range of work:

  • Monet art
  • river vocabulary
  • life cycles
  • Imovie making
  • Amazonian base 6 maths

After tide-ying and a rocky start,  the children used their mouths to describe and engage our visitors in conversations, and taught them all we knew by drip-feeding information. The confluence (confidence…) was very impressive!

The adults even made their own River creature movies with their own voice overs – all taught by the children. You can stream it below (actually, download, but that’s not a river pun.)

Water way to demonstrate their ex-sail-ent learning!

learning presentation – make a river movie!

 

 

 

 

 

Hiking and Adventure club – Forestry work!

For our final H&A club this Autumn term, we went to seek out a pair of christmas trees; one for Hevingham and one for Marsham. We did some quick measuring, needing a tree approximately ‘Miss Greenfield’ tall, and another ‘Mr Gibbons and a half’ tall too. We then bundled our chosen beauties back into the minibus, and took them to their homes!

Competition Winners – Year 5 and 6!

As part of the UEA research Park’s work into antibiotic resistance, Year 5 and 6 have made a film which explores how ABX work, and how they should be used safely!

We entered the film into a county wide competition, and we WON!

As well as the prestige of being film making champions, we also have won a free, all expenses paid trip to the science museum in LONDON!!!!!

 

Have a watch of the film, I’m sure you’ll see the skill in which the children acted and brought the bacteria and microbes to life!

Well done to Mile Cross Primary too, who created another spectacular film and will be visiting the museum too.

Our Y5/6 P.o.L – We ARE SATs ready!

On the 22nd of March, many eager adults joined us to hear how our preparation for SATs testing has been going.

The children were ofcourse fantastic; our visitors mentioned that they were:

  • chatty and knowledgable
  • personable and confident
  • well prepared and pleasant!

Well done, you confident bunch!

Spring Term 2019

What a busy start to the Spring term we have had!  The children have settled in well with their new themes ranging from Arctic regions to WWII, I’m very excited to see how their learning goes this term.

Ofsted arrived at Marsham and have verified that we are still a ‘good’ school with confident children; something that we already knew! We have welcomed PGCE and SCITT in both schools and are preparing for our annual residential trip with Year 5/6.

Watch out for our new Behaviour policy coming out in February with the chance for parents, carers and children to have their opinion about it before it is finalised.

As always, pop in and let us know your thoughts.

Norfolk Records Office

Children visited Norfolk Records Office to find out what effect  the second world war had on the village of Marsham. The children handled real artefacts from WW2, aswell as looking at original documents. These  gave us intriguing snippets of information about the village during this period for example the Parish Council giving permission for the home guard to exercise on Marsham Heath – But not to dig any trenches! .

Kestrels Class -World War Two Animation

Over the last ten weeks children from Kestrels class have been finding out what it was like to live through a war. To try to answer our philosophical question “Who are the real losers when we go to war” they researched the major events of the second world war and then interviewed six  people from the village.

Each person came in to school and spent an hour with the children explaining details and stories from their own childhood. We took the most moving or interesting parts from each conversation and the children used these clips as the basis for some animations. We wanted to bring the stories to life and make sure they are not forgotten or lost. You can view the finished animation below. We hope you enjoy it.
